Welbeck has been told that he can leave Emirates for free next summer. The striker’s is not going to be offered a new deal when he his current contract runs out at the end of the season.
The Sun report that Arsenal are confident of sealing the deal for the striker for around £15 million. Moraes has a deal that expires only in 2023, but the big money offer could tempt the Belgian side to sell him as per the report.
However, Arsenal are not the only club interested in the striker who has impressed in the Champions League this season. The report claims that Fiorentina and Valencia are also interested in signing the Brazilian.
Rumour Checker: 6/10
Arsenal do need a replacement for Danny Welbeck and Moraes seems like the ideal one. However, it will be interesting to see if the Brazilian will opt for a move to the Emirates where he will clearly be a 3rd choice striker.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette are clearly going to be Emery’s first choices at the club and anyone who comes in will have a tough battle to fight. Meanwhile, Moraes will find it easier to get into the first team at Fiorentina or Valencia.
